How can I apply for citizenship by naturalisation?

The naturalisation process allows the applicant to become a British citizen even if they were not born in the UK. According to the British Nationality Act 1981, there is a special benchmark and checklist of criteria to apply for UK citizenship. The applicant must be 18 years of age or more to apply for citizenship through the naturalisation process. Once the applicant meets all the criteria, our expert immigration caseworkers start working on your application to draft the best possible application for final submission to the Home Office. We are able to assist with this and to provide you with further advice. Please do not hesitate to contact us to discuss your case with a professional and knowledgeable immigration expert.
